This Friday at the Tarven Kabuusu in Lubaga, Golola gets a chance to pay back as he fights another Hungarian, Jonas Lakatos in a Super Middle weight World title fight
Uganda kickboxer Moses Golola has unfinished business with Hungarian fighters following his loss to Mate Zsamboki in Kampala in 2012.And his controversial loss to the late Andras Nagy before is still on his mind and wishes he was still alive so that they could settle matters in a rematch.
This Friday at the Tarven Kabuusu in Lubaga, Golola gets a chance to pay back as he fights another Hungarian, Jonas Lakatos in a Super Middle weight World title fight.
The middle weight champion has upgraded to that weight category (78-79kgs) and feels stronger than ever before.
“I had to cut on my weight because of the demands of my small opponents before. I fought Ronald Mugula at 72kgs and have also fought at 75kgs. I lost a world title to Zsamboki but I now want to return all that was taken, and if Nagy was still alive I would have asked for a rematch,” Golola stated.
“I want to beat these Hungarians and close their chapter because all my fights with them have not ended well. I now want to show my fans the real Golola because I have done special training for this fight and I’m stronger; I want to surprise my opponent with super kicks,” Golola promised.
“I only implore my fans to come in big numbers not only to support my career but also for the cause of building an academy. People have been calling for my retirement but I can’t retire without leaving a base that will carry on the sport and a kick boxing facility just like other sports have,”
He said he wants to leave the sport blossoming from generation to generation and will carry on fighting against challengers that think he is a spent force.
“This should have been my last fight but there are voices out there who want to fight me, so I will still be available to entertain them as well. I’m going to be the ‘Master’ of the academy so I will continue fighting,” Golola remarked.
He said the other aim of the fight is to raise funds for the Golola Talent Academy which will start training youngsters in Karate, Taekwondo, kickboxing, boxing and all other martial arts that have competitions at the Olympics.
“Ugandans are braced with natural strength but don’t have where to sharpen their skills from; because even when I lost my fans demanded that I go out for further training. So I want this academy to bridge the gap and also produce coaches, gym instructors and physical education teachers,”
